Snowfall forecast Friday night through Saturday; some areas could see over half a foot

A winter storm will unfold across parts of the Mid-South, South, and Tennesse Valley tonight into Saturday morning. The winter storm will allow for snow to fall as south as I-20 in some areas with moderate to heavy snow accumulations for parts of central Arkansas, northern Mississippi, northern Alabama, northern Georgia, Tennessee, and western North Carolina. These areas could see a widespread 2-4 inches of snow with some areas seeing closer to 8 inches. Snow amounts this high will cause some travel issues especially with the snow falling overnight into the early morning hours before the higher sun angle has a chance to help melt the snow.

Because of the moderate to heavy snow accumulations and travel impacts possible, winter weather alerts have been issued for many areas. Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for all the aforementioned areas tonight into Saturday morning.

Stay warm, be safe, and enjoy the snow!
